Anyone looking for tickets for Eng v India at Edgbaston - I'm looking for a swap for Eng v Saffer tickets at the Oval.

I'm not that bothered to be honest - I felt I was being mugged off anyway by being asked to fork out in excess of 50 for the so-called "cheap seats".

I didn't get final tickets in the second attempt.

I've got 4 Eng v India tickets which would be prepared to swap for 4 Eng vs South Africa tickets - let me know if anyone wants to do a Saturday swap shop.

I can't help with a swap but if you want to offload one of the England v India tickets let me know.

I've just realised that there are only 10 teams in this competition....and it's going to take 48 matches over 6 weeks to find a winner? Seriously? Who the hell thought this one up?

It's the same format as 1992 isn't it (all the teams play each other once and the top 4 go into the semis)?

Seems to be. Although that one had 9 teams and the competition took 4 weeks.

For the same reason Kim Carnes sang about Bette Davis' Eyes........?

tickets were cheap for that semi by the sounds of it, wickets too (for Gary)

In some ways that is my favourite World Cup, but ruined by the rain rule and absence of minnows.

Not that you can really do round robin with minnows, too many mismatches. Kind of got that the year Bangladesh and Ireland took advantage of a nave group stage set up where one shock and one normal result saw India and Pakistan go out.


2007 World Cup

Group B - Bangladesh beat India, Sri Lanka beat India, everyone beat Bermuda to leave India shorts of points and Bangladesh progressed

Group D - West Indies beat Pakistan, Ireland drew with Zimbabwe then skittled Pakistan for 132 to nip through by the single point despite Pakistan beating Ireland


Bangladesh and Ireland won ONE game each in the "super eight", Ireland won the head to head, Bangladesh beat South Africa who still pipped England to the last semis spot..........


England in 1992 were very good, I'd say the best but others might say another team was. Pakistan were lucky to progress, bowled out for 74 in the round robin by England with England then 24/1 after 8 overs before the game was abandoned as a non result.

Pakistan progressed by a point from Australia. To that point finals had been won by the side batting first, that changed in 1996

1975-1992 : side batting 1st 5-0 side batting 2nd
1996-2015 : side batting 1st 2-4 side batting 2nd

Bit of a shift in winners, not least probably assisted by the changes of venue, but in fairness the margins were hardly massive in 1975 (17 runs), 1987 (7 runs) and 1992 (22 runs)

Wonder if they have gone back to this so that it allows England to stay in their home World Cup longer than they did back in 1999. They might even still be in it when the World Cup song is released this time.

I just got an Ashes Ticket for Headingley on the Saturday (will be my first visit) for 80. Seems like rather better value than the World Cup.

Probably. I got tickets for the new Emerald stand for the Pakistan ODI - right behind the bowlers arm and a padded seat for 70.

Same seat for the WC probably 2-3 times that.
